Agent: Ancelotti wanted Torreira at Napoli

The agent of Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira admits Napoli wanted to sign him.

The Uruguay international scored last week in the 2-0 first leg win of their Europa League quarter-final.

“Ancelotti wanted me to bring him to Napoli up until the last minute, but we already had a verbal agreement with Arsenal," agent Pablo Bentancur told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“He rang me personally to try and convince me, but I'm sorry I just couldn't bring him to Napoli."

Napoli will host the second-leg on Thursday.
